My new cover is finally ready!!

This cover is something we’ve been working on lately.  My friend Carolyn McCray (best darn promoter in the business) and cover artist Steven Novak (best darn cover artist in the business and me (best darn author….opps - almost got carried away) J Well we’ve produced this exciting cover for my new book that I had been calling “You Shot Me”. As you can see, it’s been changed to “Roll the Dice!” Fits the image so much better, don’t you think? (Okay, I have to be honest. It was Carolyn’s idea and I grabbed it.) I’m just not too good at titles…



…ya think? (She’s me, He’s her, We’re One) I seem to have a fixed attraction for pronouns!!



This book, one I never in my wildest imagination thought I’d write, has been a real learning curve. A story so full of intrigue and fast-paced conflict that I didn’t know I had it in me. Guess I did! J  Had a blast writing the story and can’t wait until the final edits are done so it can be released. I’m aiming for the beginning of September. But you know that ole cliché …best laid plans of mice don’t always get the cheese or some such nonsense. Never was much good at those old sayings!!



Thought I’d start up a little fun on the blog and over the next while and do some character exposes on the heroine Aurora Morelli and hero Kai Lawson. And if I get carried away, I might continue on to the secondary characters also. I think I know them pretty well, but sometimes even an author can get surprised when she takes stuff out of her head and lays it all out on paper.



So check back periodically. I’ll keep you up to date on the various steps I take to try and get this book to the best-seller list on Amazon.



Gotta dream BIG!!!

  2. This book sounds so good, Mimi! I can't wait to read it. And while I can understand why you chose the title, ROLL THE DICE, I like YOU SHOT ME too!

    I'm looking forward to reading more posts about ROLL THE DICE!
